SEVENTY YEARS AGO TODAY
At 8:15 a.m. on August 6, 1945 an American military bomber released an Atomic weapon on a civilian population. The bomb detonated at 1900 feet above Hiroshima, Japan killing 140,000 of the 350,000 inhabitants.
Don't give me any shit a about ending the war early or collateral damage. War is between military combatants. An attack aimed at a civilian population is a war crime.
Winners of wars get to write the history so you will not see this in a high school American or World history book.
A crime against humanity - but begs the question: are humans capable of humanity, or so egocentric that we can justify something as heinous as this.
Have a good day
